Fabric and Roses
This weeks challenge was tough! Paint a white object and show the reflections. Painted Sunday and then wiped it out. Started over today. Learned a lot from my mistakes. Every painting, even if it's a wipeout is just practice for the next one. Wish I could paint faster.
Had this piece of fabric for years and never know what to do with it until now. It was a challenge to get it to work with the soft colored still life. But had fun painting the roses. Thanks to Carol Marine's suggestion ( a wonderful Dailypaintworks artist, find her in the link below)... just paint the general color first, then add the dark "bits" and then add the light "bits." I also squinted a lot to see the warm and cool colors, and values, too. This painting will be available when it dries. Please email me for details. Thanks!http://www.dailypaintworks.com/Challenges
